Learn more about how Housequarters gets paid for:

Property Brokering

How it works: Generally, the the fees paid to both the buyer's agent and seller's agent are paid fully by the property seller. The two agents have an independent agreement on fee split set within the Multi-Listing Service (MLS), based on the purchase price of the home.

Fees Collected by Housequarters

Potential Housequarters Retainer Credit

Notes

Buyer's Agent

1.5%-3.5% of the purchase price of the home, paid by the seller's agent depending on MLS agreement, so you pay nothing out of pocket, other than the cost of your home.

Housequarters only keeps 1.5% of the purchase price as our brokering fee. Anything collected as part of the MLS agreement above that amount becomes a credit to your Retainer Account that you can for other products or services you need from Housequarters.

When acting as a Buyer's Agent, Housequarters wants to try and give you a head start with your new home, which is why we only keep what we need, and credit the rest back to you. Your new Retainer can be used toward any other services or products they may need through Housequarters.

Seller's Agent

3.75% of the purchase price of the home

None. We put as much back in your pocket as we can. For Seller's we just charge you a lower price.

When acting as a Seller's agent, we charge a fee lower than anyone else around, help optimize your value with project in your budget, and use strong marketing approaches to attract potential buyers.

Insurance

How it Works: Housequarters offers policies for home, auto, boat, flood, umbrella, and businesses from a number of insurance carriers, getting you the best converage and best price for your specific needs. The insurance carrier pays us a commission when you purchase your insurance from them. The amount is all within the same range, so we are incentivised to find you the best deal, not find you the carrier that will make us the most money.

Home Services and Everything Else

How it works: Housequarters either has an internal team member or a dedicated partner who perform all the services you need for your home. We carefully vet, select, and test all our professionals to make sure they operate to the highest quality. Our base pricing is competitive, but our system also recommends ways to save you money along the way. We offer discounts for everything from using ACHs for payments, to efficiency discounts, bulking your needs together to offer everyone a great deal. In addition, we act as your project manager for all these services, making homeownership easier in this way. Instant price estimates are available for a number of services by just answering a few questions.

Condo/Homeowner Associations
